The local area guide to living in Llanbrynmair

Llanbrynmair is a small village and community, made up of several hamlets called Talerddig, Dolfach, Tafolwern, Pandy, Cringoed, Pennant, Llan and Llanidloes. It lies on the A470 between Caersws and Machynlleth, within the county of Powys, Wales. Llanbrynmair sits across the valleys of three rivers - Afon Twymyn, Afon Iaen, and Afon Rhiw Saeson. The three rivers combine in the main village and continue west as Afon Twymyn to Cardigan Bay.

In total, Llanbrynmair has a population of 920 (according to the 2011 census), a large proportion of whom speak Welsh and are heavily reliant on livestock farming. The countryside surrounding the village is beautiful – with verdant rolling hills that are the classic and picturesque image of Wales. Snowdonia National Park is only 11 miles away - a 15-minute drive.

Within the village there is the famous, and unique, Machinations. Machinations is the only permanent museum of Automata in the UK. Automata are whirling, twirling, bobbing mechanical models constructed from cogs, cams and levers. They are infinitely fascinating to behold and Machinations is a special attraction for the area.

Another famous attraction is St Mary’s Church in the hamlet of Llan. The site has been in use since the 6th century, with the current core of the church considered to hail from the 14th and 15th centuries.

Information about the local residents

Llanbrynmair's residents are generally healthy, happy and well educated. 45% would describe their health as 'very good' and a further 34% 'good'. 69% own their own home (higher than the Welsh average of 67%) and education levels are generally higher than that of the rest of the country.

Only 2% of the population are unemployed, with 18.37% belonging to the 'AB' social grade - which means the village has a higher than average rate of employment in higher administrative, managerial or professional roles. The average age is 44, slightly higher than the national average, and more than half of the locals are over 45.

Historically, Llanbrynmair is known for the high numbers of people who migrated from the area to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The community is thought to have been the source of the most emigrants per capita in Wales. Many ended up in western Ohio, in rural farming communities like those they left back home. This emigration is likely the reason for the area's relative popularity with American tourists, seeking to trace their heritage.

Nearby schools

Llanbrynmair's primary school, Ysgol LLanbrynmair, is an integral part of the community and offers an active, welcoming and warm environment for young children.

For secondary schools and further options for primary schools, Newtown is only 17 miles away (a 25-minute drive) and offers several choices for parents looking for the perfect place to educate their children.

Getting around

In years gone by, Llanbrynmair was served by the Cambrian railway line with its own station. However, the station closed down several years ago during the Beeching closures, which affected much of the UK.

Don’t assume, however, that this means the transportation options are dire. The community is served by regular buses, but realistically the best way to get around is by car. As mentioned, Newtown is less than half an hour away to the south-east on the A470, and has a station that has connections to all over the region. Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth are around 40 minutes away in either direction.

Local shops

Llanbrynmair is not a haven for shoppers, although it does have all the basics necessary to serve the community, including pubs, places to eat, a Post Office and other amenities.

Nearby Newtown, though, has Bear Lanes Shopping Centre which offers High Street brands, independent crafts and boutique stores, and much more. What's more, the town has a large range of good restaurants and cafes to take a lunch break while you explore.
